If you have a blockchain account, you may have noticed that sometimes you receive coins from a “fork” in the blockchain. But how do you know if you actually receive these coins?
There are a few ways to tell. First, you can check the block explorer for your particular blockchain account to see if there has been a fork. If there has been a fork, you should see two different chains listed on the block explorer.
Second, you can check the transaction history for your blockchain account. If you see two different sets of transactions, one for each chain, then you know that you have received coins from a fork.
Third, you can check with the support team of your blockchain account provider. They should be able to tell you if you have received coins from a fork.
Fourth, you can check with the exchanges that support your blockchain account. If you see that you have coins in an exchange that you did not put there, it is likely that you have received coins from a fork.
Finally, you can check with the developers of your blockchain account. They should be able to tell you if there has been a fork and if you have received coins from it.
